This is a medium to full coverage creamy foundation. I would recommend it to those with dry to normal skin, as it may be too moisturizing for oily skin. I apply it with a 187 to give a sheer/medium level coverage and it works wonders covering hyperpigmentation. I have redness and dry skin and this is the only foundation that covers without looking cakey. It can feel heavy, similar to revlons colorstay, but for the flawless finish i can overlook this con. Definately a staple foundation for my very pale skin.
This product is waaaay to thick. I wore this for quite a while and do not rate it atall. it is hard to put on with a brush because of the texture and when I put it on with my fingers I feel as though i'm just moving the product around. I'd say this product is better for people that would like very full coverage but I personally wouldnt purchase again.
Love the Dior Sculpt foundation! I have tried other types of foundation from Dior and Chanel (my fav makeup lines) and I keep coming back to sculpt. The pump bottle makes it easy to get out what you need...one pump for me is good for my whole face. So one bottle lasts about 5 months. The coverage is good..it's not sheer but if you put it on sparingly, it doesn't look heavy. But you can build it up a lot if you are going out and it still doesn't look heavy. I have hyperpigmentation on my cheeks and it covers it really well. Makes my skin look really smooth and flawless and it stays well all day. I have normal/drier skin so this may not be the best option for those who have oily skin or who break out easily.
I am writing this review a bit late but I have tried this foundation and it's actually amazing. Though it is targeted towards a more mature skin, I found that it worked well with my young skin (age 25). Perfect coverage..just slightly heavy but I was okay with that. MAde my skin illuminated and look flawless. I would buy this again for sure...didn't bother my oily skin only made it more smoother :)
I have recommended this to people and they have purchased it...
Dior foundations are pretty great.
Acne ALERT. not for oily skin, slides of a few hours after u put it on. Coverage good, no need for concealer with this. lightest shade was to dark.
Wow - I'm surprised this doesn't have much better reviews! Really surprised. I decided to sample this after determining that Dior Forever had a bit more coverage than I need (after having gone through 5 bottles of it!). Anywho, Sculpt is a truly luxurious-feeling foundation with medium to full coverage, depending on your mode of application. Use fingers for full coverage, but a brush or BeautyBlender for lighter coverage.
My shade is 021 - Linen, which is what it is in every Dior foundation. I'm NC20ish & my other matches are Chant. Future Skin in Camomile; CdP Cream in BF20; Chanel Teint Innocence in Cameo/Claire.
I love this Sculpt foundation just as much as I love the 3 that I just mentioned. Sculpt feels nicely moisturizing, but not overly so (I have very normal skin) and it leaves a slight dewiness which can be enjoyed or cancelled with finishing powder. It lasts all day & does not oxidize at all. Pure, true, lasting coverage that is believable & not too heavy. Gives a lovely, professional look to your skin, if you know what I mean by that. This definitely rates as one of my all-time-favorite foundations.
1 of my all-time fave foundations - Dior Forever being my other fave. I've never, ever bought a foundation twice in my life, but I'll definitely be purchasing Sculpt & Forever again. I come from the Aussie Sub-Tropics where it's really hot in summer & really mild in winter. So Sculpt is unsuitable in Summer - even at night; however, it's perfect for Autumn/Winter. It gives a wonderful full, powdery coverage & is luxuriously moisutrising at the same time. I love that it gives a blank canvas - no imperfections show through (no redness, no dark circles - I also use the sculpt concealer though, hardly see the pimples/blemishes). I rave about this foundation to my friends & pretty much anyone who'll listen to me blather on about foundations. At $80AU it's really steep in price, but it's definitely worth it!!!!!
I thought this product was amazing at first, but it made my face look really shiny. I dont usually have oily skin... It does provide quite good coverage and you can build it up. I've bought some YSL bronzer to use to try and mattify over the top but after a while it wears off and my face yet again looks way too shiny. Its also a really weird pinky colour.
I only use it now because I dropped my MAC studio fix (it shattered everywhere!). Once I've bought new studio fix foundation, I will not be using this foundation!
This foundation is not for the oily skinned. I only tried it once and will return.
This being said, I truly think it is a good foundation. I have some very old acne pigmentation and uneven skin tone that I want to cover, and I think the coverage I got with this was light-medium (I prefer medium-full for that airbrushed look). I used it on top of my HG primer from GOSH, and I topped it with MUFE HD silica powder, and 2 hours later, my face was too shiny for my liking, even though it didn't feel oily.
I liked the concept of a "lifting" foundation and indeed this product makes your face look/feel smooth, but I'd rather stick with my same old HG - EL DoubleWear.
Also, the SA convinced me to buy the second lightest shade, even though I thought I needed the lightest - and yep, I should have gotten the lightest, as the one I got was slightly darker than it should have, and you could see a demarcation line. The fragrance is not that noticeable and didn't bother me at all.
I am sure this foundation would suit normal to dry skin the best.
Even though I'm in my early 20s I'm used to buying foundations marketed towards older women. I need a foundation that is moisturizing on top of my regular moisturizer to prevent flaking around my nose, forehead and cheeks. Because of this I can't attest to the lifting properties of this particular foundation, but I can say that it has lasted all day (no absorption) without flaking. Additionally, it makes my skin feel incredibly soft and smooth. Its coverage is medium to full and decent at covering blemishes. Some people might be deterred by its high price (currently $53US) but as other have said...you need very little to fully cover your face. I would suggest applying this with a foundation brush and not fingers because if not spread properly it gets thick.
My only gripe with this foundation (and all Dior foundation lines) is the lack of colors. I bought this in 020 (Light Beige) which is a little dark for my in between NW15-20 skin. For additional reference, MUFE mat+ 020 Ivory is a very good color match for me. Unfortunately if you are extremely pale there probably isn't a shade that will work for you. I'm content with my slightly too dark color because summer is approaching and I will probably be moving to Texas in the near future for law school and sun coloring will be unavoidable :( but if you're lucky enough to match one of the shades Dior makes I would highly recommend this foundation for people with dry skin.
